Thanks Matej for the info! From the issue list as per Martin's notes, sounds like the major change is to remove the dependency on Guava.

Many thanks,
Emily

Hi Emily,

the 2.4 release is a continuation of 2.3.x releases.
And you will be able to smoothly upgrade Weld from 2.3 to 2.4.

We simply felt that there will be some more changes included and so
it would be fitting to increase the minor version of project (instead of micro one).


As for WELD-1574, we shall evaluate the efforts needed for backporting this from Weld 3.x to 2.4x and make a desicion based on that.
As 2.4 is a continuation of 2.3 branch, you have your answer there - no need to backport it to 2.3.x.

Regards
Matej
